LOS ANGELES - A self-described pedophile said he needs to leave California to avoid violating a state order barring him from areas where children gather.
"I have to leave the state, really, I mean I can't live here under this Orwellian protocol, whatever you want to call it, it's just nightmarish," said Jack McClellan, a self-described pedophile who has never been convicted of the crime.

McClellan, however, has been so public about his attraction to children that a judge Friday revised a restraining order against him, ordering him to remain at least 10 yards from schools, playgrounds, child-care centers and other places where children gather, KABC-TV, Los Angeles reported Monday.
McClellan, who won't say where he is moving, says he must leave California because he if stays he knows he will violate the restraining order, KABC reported.
